E-mail this file
Up to a day or so ago when I selected an image
then clicked on “E-mail this file” I would then be asked
if I wanted to reduce the size of the image or not.
For some reason or other my computer no longer asks me
if I want to reduce the size of the image. It goes straight to the
E-mail with the size as is.
What can I do to restore my computer to operate the way it was??

Right click on ‘e-mail this file’ in the ‘send to’ menu then
‘properties’ you can set this option there.

The only place that I know of a “e-mail this file” link to right click
on, is on the left margin that toggles on folders view and it does not
permit me to right click.
I also tried right clicking the file then clicking on “send to” then
right click on “Mail recipient” but that also just sends the image as is.
Perhaps I am miss-reading the advise you gave me???
“‘send to’ menu”: I don’t know where to look?

Could be, my XP is in French so I guessed the English terms.
You get the ‘Send to’ (sub-)menu via a right click on the file you want
to send. Then double-click (or right click) on the entry ‘Mail
recipient’ (I suppose) and you should get the option panel to set the
size of you image.
However, unless you’re clicking in the wrong place, which you don’t seem
to be, there’s something wrong somewhere (erm…well you knew that
didn’t you?). I see you have SP3, did theproblem happen after you

I just rechecked and it’s still just as I said. No, the computer was
working fine up until the other morning (about a week ago) and the speed
of loading my pictures is ten times longer then it was.
(I had the MB upgraded and a new CPU a month ago and they reloaded my
system with SP3 version of XP.) Seems like the whole thing went for a
c*** about a week ago. Even he restore points that I created are now

Hmm, that doesn’t sound very healthy. Perhaps you should start with a
good clean with an anti-spyware, anti adware. Spybot and AdAware for
instance. I always start from the point that if everything was fine and
suddenly isn’t there is a bug somewhere and better to put one energies
into finding and killing it rather than trying to solve the problem
directly, in this case image reduction.
I see also that you use Thundernird. Have you always used it, that is,
before the problem occurred. if so you can elimonae it from the search,
if not maybe have a look there, though I doubt if that is the probleme
as Windows seems to do the reduction rather than the mail reader you

Talked to the computer people who did the upgrade and they suggested I
uninstall my photoshop ( One of the things I could not do was change the
file association of any of my files from Adobe back to windows media
player. ) When I uninstalled it my files returned to loading almost
instantaniously. Going to try re installing Adobe again and try not to
get mixed up with any file associations this time.
I began in computers using Netscape (NS) and actually prefer it to OE
but I use OE for my mail because MS has made it so that it is the most
compatible with everything. I do still use NS in the form of
Thunderbird to do any and all news group posting / reading. I just find
the simple things it does (Like n for next and t for next thread.) just
so much more user friendly in the news group roll.
I also found an MS add on that lets you resize images on a right click
of any files/(s).
So I think I am back to being good to go.
Thanks so much for your time and assistance.

Glad to hear it.
